Photography is not allowed inside the castle. I saw a few people sneaking shots with their cells phones, but I don't roll that way. All my photos are of the outside.
Here's the view from the castle grounds - spectacular!We left the castle and hiked to St Mary's Bridge, where we took more pictures of the castle.
Then it was time to head back down the hill. I was sorely tempted to pay for another ride on the carriage, but Carol was having none of it. She was right, but still... We took a hiking trail down to the parking lot. It was beautiful, and we were able to catch glimpses of the horses between the trees.
We reached the road, and a horse trailer drove by us. I said, "Wouldn't it be great if that stopped right here in front of us."
And then it did!
Carol wasn't willing to pay for a second carriage ride, but she stood there with me as we watched the driver unload both of his horses. She's a good friend.
I look forward to being on the other side of this. I can not wait to enjoy horsey adventures with my friends again.
